Mobb Deep is a hip-hop duo from the United States, performing in s hardcore rap style. The group consists of two members - Havok (Havoc) and Prodigy (Prodigy).
Bright guys, a truly cult collective, no matter how worn out this word may look. They are said to be the cornerstone of New York hardcore. Their name - Mobb Deep - is reminiscent of the bully word "mob" that plunges most young rappers into panic. Overseas rappers can hardly be intimidated by pseudo-patriots, characters such as Prodigy and Havoc will scare any guardian of the purity of the white race themselves. These guys will quietly and measuredly promise to make you hell on earth and clearly demonstrate what killing music is.
Prodigy and Havoc meet at the prestigious Art School in Manhattan. Presumably, there would be no place for stupid ghouls-scumbags in an art school. So we can do without clichés about the narrow-mindedness and universal criminality of black rappers. Pi and Hev are out of this cliché.
The first half of the 90s was a strange time for America. While the fathers were celebrating victory in the Cold War, their children were severely depressed. And if white teenagers were killed by heroin under the growl of grunge, then their black peers preferred crack and the darkest rap. Mobb Deep's "Juvenile Hell" was one of the first to capture this mood of despair and emptiness.
